Bookish Holiday Gift Guide + HUGE Giveaway!

Hey guys! Can you believe that Christmas is only 9 days away?!? Are you prepared?! Ahh, time passes by so quickly! If you're still trying to find gifts for your book loving friends and family members, you've come to the right place! I present you with the Bookish Christmas Shopping Guide!

You can always give a book-lover books, but what if you want to give them something different this holiday season? What I have here today is a collection of some amazing stores that sell bookish merchandise and other book related things that I'm sure any book-lover would love to receive as a present (or you might even decide to gift yourself! ;) I highly recommend these brands/companies to everyone, and I, myself, am going to buy a lot of products from these shops this Christmas!

NOTE: I'm advertising these shops because I think they're amazing, not because they've payed me to.

Let's start with one of my favorite shops!

Evie's designs are incredible!! SO creative! I honestly love them so much! You guys have to go check out her shop! It's really hard to choose, but some of my favorites designs are:


See? Aren't these amazing?! <33 Society 6 also offers FREE WW shipping and many other offers, so go check it out!-

  I Start a New Adventure Every Time I Open a Book! - Inverted Mug

Lauren has an amazing Society 6 shop as well! A lot of designs are simple but I like that as they can go with pretty much any decor. You may not know exactly what your friend might like but with something as simple as this, you can't really go wrong.

Novel Heartbeat sells awesome Bookish TBR ("To Be Read") Jars on her Etsy store! I don't know about you but I always have SUCH a hard time deciding what to read next. The struggle is real. A TBR jar is a great gift for bookworms as it helps them choose their next read. (:

After all, who doesn't love cute bookmarks? ;)

My Bookmark sells the most creative bookmarks I've ever seen! They are in a higher range but definitely worth it. Go check them out!

Subscription Boxes

And finally, I have two AMAZING bookish subscription boxes that I am a huge fan of! Not only do they include great books and bookish items such as bookmarks, jewelry, signed bookplates, and other merch, they are run by some truly dedicated and hardworking people. I highly recommend both of these boxes!
